The Builders Association celebrates and deconstructs The Wizard of Oz in this clever mash-up of theater, technology, and pop culture.

A narrator recounts juicy background details about the making of the film as three powerful performers recreate famous moments live on stage. Interspersed with excerpts of the original novel, YouTube tributes, fan theories, and critical interpretations from the likes of Salman Rushdie, Elements of Oz revels in the ways in which tens of thousands of people around the globe have made Oz their own.

Viewers are invited to keep their phones out and interact with the action on stage through a unique app that delivers the Technicolor Land of Oz direct to our devices. In much the same way the classic MGM movie transported us from the stark black and white of Kansas to a vibrant Technicolor Oz, Elements of Oz uses AR (Augmented Reality) in a new way which enlivens and deepens the audience’s experience.

“Loose, loopy and enjoyable … dazzling … fun to watch.” — The New York Times
